Feature #171: Create a Testwiki
Investigate and create a Cron Job for deleting accounts
Investigate to delete unused and spam accounts on a regular basis with a script.
I found following existing PHP scripts:
The first script might need a change to add an additional parameter (how long the account is unused)
Of course these scripts should first be tested in a testwiki. ;-)

Can't the --ignore-touched parameter be used to not delete account touched in the last N days. If it is set to 30, for example, every account not touched/used in those 30 days. If an account has been inactive for more than 30 days, then it's deleted. Is this what is needed?

well I have to check that. I have never administrated a wiki where this was needed (registration on by admin-approvement)

If you want, we can use my VM to test this. We'll have to set up a time where we can meet.
